Giving our birds the right to fly has got to be the single most beneficial thing any of us can do for our birds. It is the essence of what a bird is.

Staying fit and active along with good diet is the key to a long healthy life. That includes us. JMHO.

Jack Lalane can still do 50 pushups at the age of 98.

Great post Bonnie. :)

Great links. That last one actually is giving me some great ideas for Princess my tiel with splayed legs. Never would of thought about attaching a non moving hamster wheel to the side for her to sit in. Just been giving her a empty dish to sit in.
But I wonder how safe moles skin is for birds if they chew on it?

That article caring for Arthritic birds is the best one I have ever read. Lots of good info for setting up cages and everything.
